With Labor Day weekend officially a wrap, it's time to think about the cozy season ahead. Autumn naturally draws us to the appeal of chunky knit blankets to curl up by the fireplace with (or firepit for that matter). Most importantly, it’s a look your home can benefit from as well.

Likewise, interior designers have been favoring the look of late as well. Why not give your home that warm squeeze? Prevailing in this look is natural unspun wool that creates chunky knit blankets which are graphic and gentle at the same time. Furthermore, that knitting has resurged as a relaxing pastime only adds to the appeal of these decorative throws. Such a profound design exercise as it is, some cultures have elevated hand-knitting to an art form as a result.

Natural Knits

1. The Citizenry Nublado Wool Throw - Gray

Nublado Wool Throw - Gray
$395.00 BUY NOW

Mountainous Peru cherishes its knitting heritage, consequently the country's handknit sweaters made from Alpaca wool are world-famous. This wool comes from the domesticated version of the vicuna mammal which lives in the Andes mountains. As an example, this irresistible Nublado gray wool throw, available at, is made from the delicate natural wool.

The stunning blanket was crafted by a single master weaver; for example, it takes an entire day to make just one throw. Ultra-thick and made from luxe unspun wool, its exquisite composition lends itself more to styling rather than daily snuggling. When paired against cognac leather — whether a chair, trunk, or stool — this knit throw certainly makes for a handsome and inviting home. 

Likewise, mountain living and Mother Nature seem to go hand in hand with a robust knit. Influencer Shea Marie recently took to the road in a small camper to Zion Canyon National Park with her boyfriend. Breathtaking views of the desert were captured on her Instagram account. A yummy chunky knit blanket in cream perched on the mobile home bed is juxtaposed against the bold landscape most definitely serves up some serious home-styling fomo.

Moreover, popular chunky knit blanket styles are often rendered in natural hues: cream, taupe, soft brown, gray. Cashmere is another irresistible fiber that works on a soft jumbo sweater or home chunky knit blanket throw, for instance. New York’s Bergdorf Goodman, a mecca for all things hyper-luxurious, offers a seed-stitch cable throw from Sofia Cashmere. The US-based manufacturer of capes, shawls, and scarves uses long, soft fibers that above all, resist pilling for longtime wear and come in a mélange of easily mixed and matched neutrals.

Colorful Knits

But these neutral-toned chunky knit blankets aren’t the end-all, be-all when it comes to sweater dressing for your home. On the other hand, a bright pop of color works as a visually-compelling punctuation point in a neutral clothing ensemble as well as it does in a home color palette.

Fashion that's worn and fashion for the home are often closely correlated, and some brands blur the lines. For example, Los Angeles–based ready-to-wear brand The Elder Statesman was founded in 2007 when surfer-turned-entrepreneur Greg Chait launched a series of custom-made cashmere blankets. With an emphasis on craft, Chait’s designs reach into the soul of the bohemian lifestyle, vis-a-vis the relaxed LA vibe. In addition, this striped, hand-loomed, soft chunky knit blanket in Crayola colors has a "Made in the USA" label to boot.
